Matthew is a native of nearby Nottoway County. He came to faith in Christ as a young boy through the Vacation Bible School ministry at Burkeville Baptist Church. Since then, God has done great things for Matt. He's married to a wonderful woman, Erin, and they have four fun-loving children.

Prior to joining Sandy Creek, Matt was part of a church plant team that established a new fellowship just north of Charlottesville, VA. Matt focused on building discipleship opportunities and community. Matt has also served the Church as a guest preacher throughout Virginia and North Carolina.
